New York Ebola doc Craig Spencer is cured… but can’t have sex for THREE MONTHS because virus can live on in his semen

Looks like a lot of cold showers for this guy!

Daily Mail reports New York Ebola patient Dr Craig Spencer is heading home to see his ebolagirlfriend today after being cleared, but will not be able to have sex for three months because the virus can survive in semen.

Dr Spencer, 33, was isolated in Belleview Hospital after reporting Ebola symptoms following his return from helping to treat the deadly infection in Guinea.

His case caused alarm after it emerged he had travelled around the city for six days, going bowling, dining out and using an Uber cab, before being diagnosed.

Following round the clock treatment for 19 days, sources tell the New York Times Dr Spencer has been given the all-clear to go home to his fiancee Morgan Dixon, who is quarantined in their Harlem apartment.

Miss Dixon will have to remain in the house for the next four days, as she is still considered an infection risk.

Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency physician from Lenox Hill Hospital, told the New York Daily News: ‘Once he’s had Ebola, he develops antibodies (that are) protective to him.

‘He won’t get Ebola again. Since he’s not having fever or active symptoms, he’s not at risk to the community.

‘The virus lives in semen for up to 3 months, so he should not engage in sexual intercourse (for that time).’

Mayor Bill de Blasio said he will shake Dr Spencer’s hand after he is released, calling him a hero, and adding that his is the last known case of Ebola in the U.S.

Seven of the eight cases of Ebola cured on American soil have all been treated within 22 days – and the eighth patient was released within 40 days
